Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Greg Cox's The Rings of Time. It was an okay, but not fantastic read. It felt like an original series episode, which was good, but one of the mediocre ones. I normally like Greg's stuff, but this one just didn't stand out to me.

Decided to take a brief break from TrekLit and have started a series I've never actually read yet. Now reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. (I should point out I HAVE seen all the movies.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Fantastic Four: What Lies Between by Peter David (O.K. but not one of Peter David strongest novels) and read Doctor Who: Dead of Winter (again an O.K. read, but nothing outstanding).

Next up: Star Trek: The Rings of Time by Greg Cox.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I find myself reading so much at once it's not even funny. I know some here like to gobble up as many books as they can at a go, but I've always been the one-at-a-time type (occasionally two at a a time). And right now I've got: Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (a re-read); Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens; The Complete Terry And The Pirates, Vol. 4 by Milton Caniff; and a manuscript science fiction novel written by a friend. All of this and reading the Bible in a year as the cherry on top.

And catching up on the last few pages of this thread makes me remember how far behind I am in my TrekLit. Almost one of those projects you don't want to start because of how big it is, but you know if you leave it much longer it will only get bigger. <shudder>

Just started reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone in Russian. Fun way to brush up on my very rusty Russian and get a HP fix.

^So in Russian is it Philosopher's or Sorceror's? I doubt the words translate the same way...

^They don't, and it's Philosopher's, thank goodness. The change to Sorcerer's for the US edition is one of my pet peeves about the series.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

On the suggestion of a friend, I'm currently reading through Horus Rising from the Warhammer catalogue. It's fairly interesting, if the Universe-specific terminology has a steep learning curve for someone who isn't totally immersed in that universe.

As soon as I finish this one I'm moving on to the third Mission Gamma novel, Cathedral and then Genesis Wave, Book 3. (I am hoping to alternate DS9 and TNG books so once I finish Unity, I'll be up to the A Time To... novels.

I finished Stargate SG-1: Sunrise (bleh) last night, and started on Starfleet Academy: The Edge.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

About half way through Gemworld II - it's taken me about a year off and on to get this far through them both, but going to finish them this time.

Not awful, but not really that interesting...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Spirit Walk: Old Wounds yesterday and made a start on Resistance today as part of a 25th Anniversary run through of the TNG Relaunch novels. About 40% through so far and I wish that Lio Battaglia and Sara Nave's characters were replaced by Jim Peart and Kell Perim from the A Time to... series. I know they left at the end of A Time to Heal, but their deaths would have had more impact. Oh well.
